Some users have reported significant loss of GPS signal after upgrading to baseband .
A reboot is always the first thing to do but I doubt it’s going to fix anything. Did you encounter any problem after updating to i OS 4?
i OS4 will be out shortly, in-fact it is only a matter of few hours away.
Later on, it came to my attention that it could have been Google’s issue and not i OS 4’s.
We aren't sure why, but what we do know is that in order to get i OS 4 onto your i Phone 3G, you must do a restore (not an upgrade).
The truth is that as long as you back up your device first, a restore isn't very much different from an update, other than the fact that it will take considerably longer to complete.
This is because rather than just attempting to update only the changed parts of the i OS software (as an update would do), i Tunes completely erases the device, installing a 'clean' operating system, and then it restores your various settings and syncs your apps and music back to your i Pod or i Phone.
If there is one you can then follow the normal upgrade process and your i Phone 3GS, 3G or i Pod Touch will be updated to use i OS4. You can know more about me and my projects by visiting my Personal Website.
